Welcome back to another episode of the tech for good live podcast. If you’ve lost a bet, or have been tricked into listening to the show for the first time… it’s a podcast all about using technology to have a positive impact in the world.

Today’s show is jam-packed with excellence, or with tedium, depending on whether you’re “cool” or whatever.  We talk about how the planet is getting hotter but not in a good way. We dig into some stats about charity digital skills and we discuss web privacy and a really boring fight for the future of the internet.


This week’s topics:
